We’ve been contacted by Beth’s Kitchen which is a cafe at Breedon on the Hill which is cycle friendly. It has a good covered outdoor area where you can see your bikes and good toilet facilities. The owners say “I’m about to buy a few running spares for everyone, cables, allen keys, tubes, tyre levers etc and bring in my track pump! (Any old tools not needed will be gratefully received and put into a designated tool box.) I’m looking at putting in some hooks and locks so that bikes can be secured if you want to explore other shops around the site.”

A recent report from Sky and British Cycling estimated the contribution of cycling to the UK economy as £3billion. A good statistic to bring up when anyone suggests bikes are just toys. The document can be found here
